Shows this weekend include:

Sinang Aribowo is here with his 1/48 Trumpeter MiG-19 AURI.  Sinang modified the Trumpeter kit to make an accurate Indonesian Mig-19 and then finished off the flawless bare metal finish with a subtle weathering. 

Élcio Mendes de Araújo is here with a model I sure enjoyed seeing.  This is his 1/48 Testors Rockwell OV-10 Bronco with some additional scratchbuilding and finished in an attractive looking camo pattern with Venezuela Air Force markings.  This is a great looking Bronco using this classic Testors kit

Jorge Beleña "Yoryi" joins us from sunny Spain with his gorgeous looking 1/72 Airfix F-5A Freedom Fighter.  Jorge finished his freedom Fighter with missiles and Iranian Air Force markings.  Jorge is too modest.....I really like the look of his F-5.

Bartosz Piotrowski has done an exceptionally nice job building and finishing his 1/72 Heller Mirage F1CT.  This Mirage has a weapons load and droptank and is sporting French markings.  I love the look of this Mirage.

Pieter Stam is here with something you won't see often.  This is his 1/144 Platz C-46 in Bolivian markings.  Pieter's article explains the history behind this aircraft as well as what was involved to build this fine little multi-media kit.  The markings were done with custom made decals.

Maurizio Bressan is here with photos from the recent 2012 Bellaria Model Show by Pelikan Guys.  ARC members did attend this very successful and enjoyable show as you will see by the photos.  At the end of the article is a photo of some of the ARC Members.  Now you can put a few faces to names.  Great looking show guy...well done!!!
